Ana Popovic announces new album, “Power”


Guitarist Ana Popovic is set to release Power on May 5th. It’s her first album since a life changing cancer diagnosis.

“In the fall of 2020, while the world was dealing with Covid, I found myself in a dire and devastating situation,” says Popovic. “I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Having lost my mother three years before the same illness, my world just crumbled. My family had just built a beautiful new home in Manhattan Beach, California. It seemed that everything we had looked forward to, suddenly came to a crashing halt.” “It left me with so many uncertainties. We didn’t know what to do,” continues Ana. “Should we move back to Europe? Should I abandon my music career and simply stop performing? I didn’t know what choices I had or what path I should take.”

Ana’s bassist and musical director, Buthel, provided some much needed encouragement, “You can’t retire! You’re born for this,” he told her. “We’ve got work to do. We need to touch people with our music,” he said.

“He simply has that gift,” Ana said; “he can build people up!”

The duo connected through Zoom to write the new album while Popovic flew back and forth between Los Angeles and Amsterdam for chemotherapy treatments.

“He took care of the band, oversaw the music, and even chose wigs and hats with me, encouraging my new look, and our new sound while helping me through every difficult day on the road,” says Popovic. “This record brought my spirit the salvation it needed, and ultimately, the music and my ’64 Fender Stratocaster saved my life. I’m convinced now more than ever that guitars CAN save lives.”

Popovic has released a music video for the first single, “Turn My Luck.”
